We made a trip to KC to drop Sonora off for the week. She wanted to spend the Independence Day holiday with her uncle and cousins. So we went in town. While we were there Henry invited Corvin and I to the shooting range with him. Corvin had only ever shot a .22 riffle and was excited.
And a short video of Henry firing a round
After the range, we went to Hiatt’s house as it was the reason we came in town. Hiatt was being goofy and I got a shot of him!
Its no Kawasaki Ninja, but it’ll have to do for now.
We finally had our first paddle at Waterfall. We went from Morris Mill back to our property. After we got settled, there is a bit of rapid to get through very close to the start. I went left with Sonora and barely made it. There was lots of bracing and getting my foot out of the boat to get us off the rocks. I sent Danelle and Corvin to the right to portage, but they ran it. It turned out much better for them. We definitely fared better than the jet ski we found!
Back near our property, we were frustrated to find two bobcats moving flood debris from a house straight into the river.
Our second Chicken and Waffle day at the office was a success. We started early with mimosas.
Before long it was lunch time and we fired up three waffle irons and three deep fryers. One of the deep fryers didn’t work, so we were down to two. To speed up the process this year, we purchased breaded chicken tenders. Then fried great and saved tons of time. Nobody left hungry and there were plenty of leftovers!

I’ve switched 100% to the 36″ unicycle. The only way to get better is to go out and ride it. Today I went out to the River Des Peres trail to ride as its rather flat. I got some cool shadow photos while I was riding.
Shortly after, I managed to wreck and cut my finger, I”m still not sure how. My confidence was low and this didn’t help, so I called it a short ride day.
After being apart for a week, we just wanted to hang out together for the day. We started off with a family paddling trip.
We enjoyed a family lunch at the half way point. Not to let the day be normal, we finished it off by going bowling!
Sometimes you just have to go out an be together!
